amendment right to due process, nor the u.s. law against killing americans abroad, nor the u.s. law banning assassinations, nor just the law against murder, nor the laws of war broadly legally constrain the president from ordering the type of assault that killed american citizen and prominent al qaeda figure on war al awlaki in yemen in 2011. al awlaki's son was also killed a couple of weeks after his father was killed. between those two killing, charlie savage at "the new york times" reported on the existence of a legal memo that the government was relying on to claim that the attack was legal. that memo is what is being disclosed to select members of congress tonight. it follows by two days the scoop by nbc news investigative correspondent michael isikoff, who this week on this show disclosed a white paper that was based on the reasoning of that secret memo. tonight's disclosure follows increasingly intense questioning of the administration on this matter by senate democrats, particularly by senator ron wyden of oregon, who today told reporters that while he understood that operations nee

about drones is not that u.s. forces can kill people from the air using targeted so-called precision-guided missiles. u.s. forces have been killing people from the air for as long as we have had the capacity to put armed things in the air. what is novel about what our government is doing now in our day is not necessarily the technology. yes, we are using remote piloted aircraft versus traditionally piloted aircraft to launch these same missiles. but the type of aircraft, that is, the delivery system for the hellfire missile is not the new moral strategic legal thing that we are finding ourselves newly responsible for grappling with as citizens. it is not the technology by which u.s. forces are killing people which is knew in an important way. it's not the technology that's new. it is the circumstances. it is the circumstances of killing people away from where a war is being fought. if the u.s. was using a mix of helicopters and drones to fire hellfire missiles at insurgents who were fighting with u.s. troops in afghanistan right now, nobody would have a different ethical concern or a
growth and will the risks like u.s. politics stay out of the way? the answer is yes and my guess for now it is yes. the path of least resistance is higher. connell: even if you are right, people say boy, initial investors, we will talk later about the fact they have been getting more involved in the market and the inflow starting to look better on that front, but some of them say we've had a nice run above the 14,000 last week, i missed it, should've gotten in earlier. they're looking for a big pullback, is that the wrong way to go about it in your view? >> i would step up my purchases, i would not try to time it if i had earmarked for the equity market. we have avoided the fiscal cliff posted on the debt ceiling. earnings are decent, decent economic indicators here and outside the u.s. on balance is good, not everyone of them. we have central bankers all over the world, but begging for reflation putting money in the system and a lot of cash getting zero return and those things i think are the reason the stock is likely to continue going. connell: that is the last one i want to pick up o

generation and there are about 45,000 wind turbines in the u.s. right now. but in all the studies that we have covered, all the stories we have covered we haven't come across the story where the outcome could mean town locals may end up with a tax increase in order to cover up to 15 million of costs of removing the wind turbines. this is shocking. they paid to 10 to $15 million in order to install the things to put them up with the idea they would be saving money over time as they ranch as you heard because of the curtailment right now they're operating at a loss. if they get rid of the turbines as the town wants, they will get taxed another $15 million in order to pay for that. joining us for a first-hand account, okay. we're going back to that story in just a moment. let's move onto the sequester cuts for a moment here and how to fix them. president obama was in virginia today, warning of the dire consequences of defense cuts and what they will have on our military and our economy. you heard about all this, in 2012 of course we spent $65 billion on the military. today we're helping to s

of cyber attacks against u.s. companies. dagen: the white house is considering fines and other trade penalties against china. peter barnes has the very latest from washington. peter: the administration is expected to release its own reports. attorney general eric holder will be holding a news conference on this this afternoon. the u.s. is trying to step up efforts to prevent chinese hacking which have hit dozens of u.s. companies. the second report increasing pressure on the administration to take more forcible action against the chinese for what experts say have been years of systematic x-men nosh. these new programs between u.s. intelligence agencies and companies will take time to roll out. connell: peter barnes in washington, d.c. for us. obviously, this is becoming a bigger and bigger story for us. watch this. >> we have also, regularly and repeatedly, raised our concerns at the highest level with the chinese government about cyber theft. including with sr. chinese officials and the military will continue to do that. connell: former navy seal is with us. you have heard the gover
markets, as well. this is where we stand in the u.s. spanish yields higher, 5.31%. interestingly enough, we look ahead to mr. person unanimousky to give treasuries. gilt yield 2.018% is where we stand at the moment. giving support because of the risk off caused by those italian elections. euro/dollar, that's been down to 1.3039. that's the seven-week low, january 10th we hit that. dollar/yen, what a wild day yesterday for dollar/yep. we hit a 33-month high for dollar against the yen, 94.77. then we fell down to 90.85 at the moment. 91.94. aussie/dollar still weak. sterling/dollar, we're spinninged in at this low, 1.5166. selling has bounced back as you might expect against the euro. the italian election yesterday caused gold to spike up to around 1600. just below it at the moment at 1598. brent continues to weaken below 114 and nymex a little weaker at 92.32. that's where we stand in reaction to the after markets here to the italian elections. let's get more reaction on the asian markets with sixuan. >> thank you, ross. asian markets fell sd as the political stalemate in italy was felt
as if it were an act of war. any attack against u.s. interests. now, it has become routine. we are getting a quarter of a million attacks against government facilities every day. we have a story like this today in which the federal reserve was hacked. presumably that a number of groups including anonymous. it should be very very disconcerting to all americans that we do not know who is caring out these attacks. we know, in general, that the people's republic of china carries out the largest number of attacks from mainland china against u.s. interests. mainland china and the peoples republic there. they managed to carry out, also 3500 front organizations in this country specifically to hack, acquire, steel, however you want to say it, military secrets. all of which have been the victims of cyber attacks. they say, well, nothing very much was, you know, taken from us. we do not know who did it. rest assured, it was a temporary problem and has since been fixed. it is repeated by the day. lori: do you think that these cyber attacks are escalating toward something bigger? to your point, you men
deals with the world away from the u.s. military and toward u.s. diplomacy. to upscale our soft power capacity as a country so we have more options beyond just the option of force. this president did a lot to advance that idea simply by putting somebody as high profile as hillary clinton in the job of america's head diplomat. but the overall goal of upscaling state, upscaling diplomacy and development so they are right up there with defense, like she said today, that is widely regarded as a goal that is not yet realized. secretary clinton alluded to that fact today when she said she now plans to become an advocate for that cause from the outside. it is, frankly, easy to imagine that as the core for her return to public life and politics for hillary clinton at some point, but we shall see. the secretary also reflected today on how she is really leaving public life for the first time in a very long time. and she suggested that that might make her a little lonely. >> i am very proud to have been secretary of state. i will miss you. i will probably be dialing ops just to talk. >> dialing
to get very, very desperate to find someone to run for his now open u.s. senate seat. also today, the president gives a barn burner in minnesota. he says on the political issue where we are supposedly so politically divided that we can never make progress of any kind, he says on that issue specifically, actually, right now we have a national consensus that we can move on. that's all ahead. >>> plus, the political right all at once, all in unison gets very vocally angry with karl rove. poor karl. frank rich from "new york" magazine is here on the show tonight. we've also got the latest conspiracy theory about the terrifying photo shopped secrets of president barack hussein obama. did you know his emotional name is hussein? the conspiracies about the president get even more conspiratorial than they have in years past. >>> we're beginning with a big deal, a story you will not see anywhere else, because it is an nbc news exclusive. nbc's national investigative correspondent michael isikoff has uncovered something that is not classified, but treated as one of the biggest secrets of th
that is completely an mating the white house. take illinois spending patterns and extrapolate that onto the u.s. economy, that's where the president is proposing to lead us about $26 trillion in debt. i don't think we're going to hear a lot about how the president can grow the economy through the private sector and why unemployment is still at a nagging 7.9%. i think that's where the action is and what he should be talking about but i don't think that's what we'll be hearing. >> when i was on "squawk box" this morning we entered a lot of democrats. they seem to think his last speech and the speech he's going to make tonight are going to be completely embracing both sides of the aisle. do you agree with that assessment? >> i'd be surprised. if you listen to the inaugural speech, this is going to be inauguration 2.0. i'm delighted to be surprised to hear a sincere bipartisan effort on the part of the president. what i've noticed over the past few years, the president's definition of bipartisanship is you vote for my stuff. i don't think that's a way to get to a remedy on a lot of these problems.
. northbound one, operation control the border between u.s. and mexico, that was never really defined. one definition said the whole border had to be under government surveillance. that is true, it is 100% monitored. another definition says we need to be able to quickly respond to any activity, any activity on the border. we're up 57%, up from 1 first in 2007. but experts believe it is just unbelievably impossible. provision number two, staff enhancements for border patrol to 20,000 full-time agents, check, there are currently 24,000. number three, strong barriers which include at least 7,000 physical barriers, plus 105 radar and camera towers and at least four unmanned vehicles to monitor the border. we currently have the amount that covers the area from texas to california. customs and border protection is nearly 300 in operation. and there are currently five, one more than four, patrolling the border. pretty good on that, number four, catch and return, as opposed to catch and release. in other words, every person caught crossing the border would be detained. it is also called ice, the e
into body that doesn't know how to practice it. that was the u.s. congress. liz: why isn't president obama being criticized for breaking his no taxes in 2008? >> he should be. he has an early lead on anything. he should be leading congress to make policy changes around taxes. it also around entitlement reform. he has to reform government and we need to reform our tax code. i think reforming government is even more important than reforming our tax code right now. we have to get entitlement growth under control and we have to relax regulations rather than impose new ones. right now we have the overhang of the regulatory burden stifling creativity and our economy. so we have an overregulated the economy that is suffering through a likelihood that tax rates will go up even more. all of that is a bad formula for growth when it comes to what should be happening in our entrepreneurial grounded capital system that should be there creating jobs. liz: you make a good point. americans know that if we want to make entitlement state, if we want the entitlement machine running full bore in washington dc
the results of the endf the show. well, obamacare is helping dig the u.s. deeper into debt. now our monstrous debt, 16 trillion, has people wondering if that is the real reason the u.s. keeps talking tough but won't get tough with china. this is all over the numerous cyber attacks china is accused of waging against u.s. companies and government agencies. a fox news contributor. great to have you back on the show. it seems like the u.s. government wants to talk a tough game. there is absolutely y nothing behind it. how can there be something behind it when we hope china so much money? >> talk with nothing behind it is unfortunately typical of the obam administration. the point you're making about the debt is significant. i think it has been a problem for the united states in the wrong way. it comes up when people say whenever we have an issue with china basically they say, well, we can't do anything about that. then we don't do anything about it. you never challenge china you never forced them to use the debt as leverage, so the went for free. the conclusion in beijing is we might as well post
